The inaugural Prescient strategic foresight training course is is quickly approaching!
From June 17-19, Prescient will be partnering with Arizona State University to offer a professional strategic foresight training experience that combines futures thinking with hands-on planning for the era of artificial intelligence.
If you’d like to learn the tools of strategic foresight, gain insight and develop strategies for the organization of the future, then the Foresight Sandbox is for you. Prototype potential futures: Build, test out, knock down, and rebuild potential ways that advances in artificial intelligence could unfold in diverse future business environments. Just like playing in a sandbox, but much more exciting.
As the strategic foresight training course approaches, we are proud to announce the addition of four new faculty members who will lead the inaugural course from June 17-19:
